Writer Mandy Stadtmiller's career as a dating columnist was taking off as her post-divorce social life was filled with late-night excitement and famous hookups. But she also couldn't get off the hamster wheel of trauma and feel better about herself. Mandy talks with Marc about how she came to terms with the compromises she made writing for a tabloid newspaper and the trouble she encountered when putting her experiences into memoir form. This episode is sponsored by Audible, Sonos, and SimpliSafe.
Amiira & Greg talk with Author & Comedian Mandy Stadtmiller about her new memoir “Unwifeable”, personal boundaries and lack thereof, historical triggers, the energy shifting magic of clapping and the unsung importance of directing your sexual energy and desire into strengthening your marriage instead of wasting it on strangers.
Daily Beast Columnist & Author of new book "Unwifeable" Mandy Stadtmiller & Gleib have a very real and honest conversation about what led to becoming, as she put it, "a crazy, coked up sex addict” and how she turned it around. Why she wrote a gossip and dating column for The New York Post and Xo Jane. She tells us about dating Keith Olberman. Aaron Sorkin, Moby, Marc Maron and Hannibal Buress, (Gleib debuts his impressions of Keith and Hannibal.) The reason the Roseanne reboot is getting insane ratings. The benefits of dirty talk. How she makes it work being married to a Trump supporter. Where she thinks Trump is misunderstood. Why Gleib thinks we’ve lost our core. Tonya Harding on Dancing with the Stars. War Games with South Korea. Kim Jong Un’s charm offensive and new love of K-Pop. The importance of context in reporting. Why it’s important to give slack to comedians. Trump sending our troops to the border. The importance of talking. And the beauty clause in Kim Kardashian’s will.
